Musée Modern Museum

musée modern museum – The curators’ choice.

The collection of Modern and Contemporary Art of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium includes works dating from the end of the 18th century - including the famous Death of Marat (Jacques-Louis David, 1748°) - to the present day. 

This fascinating collection is divided into three thematic worlds. The Magritte Museum has the world's largest collection of the famous Belgian surrealist René Magritte (1898-1967)! From Impressionism to Art Nouveau, from fine arts to opera, the Fin-de-Siècle Museum brings to life the effervescent art scene in Brussels between 1868 and 1914.

The collection of Modern and Contemporary Art (from 1914 to the present day) is currently inaccessible. However, temporary exhibitions regularly exhibit some works from this collection, until they can be moved to a suitable location.

(Re)discover about 150 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, installations, and videos from the collection at the virtual BE MODERN exhibition.
